On the night of a crimson full moon, high school girl Ayazuki Mei enters into a box. When she awakens, she's in Tokyo during the Meiji Period! The lost and confused Mei is taken to the Rokumeikan, a lavish ballroom full of powerful high officials. In this world, during the "Misty Hour" between sundown and sunup, "mononoke" appear. Those who can see them are called "Tamayori," and Mei herself possesses this power. As she navigates an unfamiliar life, romance begins to bloom between Mei and these men -- and the power of the tamayori will only strengthen their bonds.
So this anime has been on my "want to watch" list for a while and I was hoping I would like it. It's a reverse harem and romance anime, two of my absolute favorite types. However, I didn't expect to like it this much. I ended up a sobbing mess at the end and basically had a panic attack. As a side note, I just couldn't stop watching and finished this in one day. I absolutely loved the animation of this, V1 Studio really does a wonderful job of animating. I'm not sure if I'm good at rating animes since I just end up loving it no matter what, but I'll try my best. Story The story took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. I was hooked from the beginning, and throughout the story, it kept me interested. I felt frustrated, happy, sad, and angry all during these 12 episodes. I can't find anything wrong regarding the plot, really. I didn't find anything overly unreasonable or crazy. I loved the suspense at the end where we're waiting in anticipation what Mei will decide to do. I was personally saddened by the ending, but I feel like it's the best ending we can get. The ending doesn't leave us with a completely closed book or concrete ending but instead leaves it open as if more is to come. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the story. Animation Honestly, there's nothing wrong about the animation. Literally. Nothing. I loved the cute chibi moments, they were adorable. The characters and scenery were animated beautifully. V1 Studios really is amazing. Sound The voices excited me so much. Whenever a new character was introduced, I would be overwhelmed with happiness because they all had such "ikemen" voices. All of the characters had such fitting seiyuus, and I wasn't disappointed with a single one. The music was wonderful. The jazzy-type opening was one of the factors that hooked me to this during the beginning. It's definitely going on my playlist after this. Characters I have but one word to explain my reactions to all the characters: fangirl. I squealed so loudly during this anime, my voice probably went up five octaves whenever a new character was introduced. I can't really pick a favorite, they're all wonderful characters it's Shunsou shhhh. I fell in love with the character designs of all of them. The voices match their personality and appearance wonderfully. One thing I will say. After finishing the anime, I wish we saw more about Charlie. He's such a mysterious character and I really would like to learn more about him. In fact, I would like to see more about the past of the main characters. Other than that, the characters didn't fail to please me.
Meiji Tokyo Renka was a fairly good anime. It has a few moments that I was like PLEASE GET TO THE POINT!! I found my self feeling for the characters at the end. I personaly think the end was a bit sad. I liked all the characters and the story itself. I enjoyed that there was many forms of art such as painting and writing. Some of the story was a bit plain but past that it was a very enjoyable anime. Its not one to sit there for hours and watch at once in my opinion. I watched it over 4 days. Over all I would recommend watching it. Thanks all thanks for reading my review on Meiji Tokyo Renka!
I'm surprised I loved this as much as I did. At first I just watched it as something to watch and it seemed like other otome game anime adaptations. But It's different to the ones I've watched before. I like the characters better and they're not as surface level as the others. The main character also has a personality and isn't completely flat do-nothing like others I've encountered. I actually like the main character. The animation is good. It's just the normal. Its not bad or fantastic, but its good animation overall. The story was relaxing and enjoyable.
